The plots weren't really all that great when you get right down to it.
What I really watched it for, for the few weeks it lasted, was the character interaction and the excellent actors who worked on the series.
I've always enjoyed Christine Belford since her days on "Banacek"; Rod Taylor, of course, has always been a joy (where is he lately?); William Lucking I liked from the time I saw him playing Babe Ruth in an episode of "Voyagers!" in the 80s; Charles Napier is one of those faces most recognize without knowing who he is (anyone remember him playing Adam in the episode The Way to Eden on Star Trek?); Richard Roundtree has remained one of my favorite actors over the years; and Patrick Houser managed to hold his own among all those illustrious performers.
Every so often I pull out my tapes and revisit this silly guilty pleasure just for fun.
